Interior minister hailed for citizenship ‘revoke’

KUWAIT CITY, Aug 13: Member of the parliamentary Financial and Economic Affairs Committee Ahmed Lari has stressed the importance of presenting the government’s development plan for 2015/2016 to 2019/2020 before the end of this year because next year’s budget will be based on the plan. Lari affirmed the government is keen on laying down a development plan at the right time to ensure the Parliament accepts it, indicating the plan will be attached to the general budget.

He warned about the dire consequences in case next year’s budget is not linked with the development plan as the executive and legislative authorities might repeat their previous mistakes. He said if this happens, the budget will merely consist of ministries’ expenses without taking into consideration the rules or principles. He called on the government to present a clear, simple and realistic development to achieve the desired results. He voiced objection to copying the previous plan which was vague and inappropriate.

Meanwhile, on the issue of revoking the citizenship of those accused of undermining the security of the country, MP Abdullah Al-Tamimi praised Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Sheikh Mohammad Al-Khalid Al-Sabah for performing his duties well.

He confirmed the minister is trying his best to apply the law properly in order to serve the interests of the nation and its people. He said the minister has courageously taken steps without hesitation while disregarding pressure from anyone as he deals with various issues. He reaffirmed his support for the minister, particularly in terms of applying the Citizenship Law; as well as the decisions taken by the government in this regard.

Commenting on the same issue, MP Hamad Al-Harshani commended the interior minister and a team from his ministry for working hard to secure the country and apply the law on everyone, considering the current situation in the region. He pointed out works silently to serve the interests of the nation. On the other hand, MP Mohammed Tanna has proposed the establishment of a fund to compensate victims of vehicular accidents.

He said the fund will have an independent legal personality and budget under the supervision of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The bill stipulates that the fund will be used to compensate for damages caused by vehicular accidents in case of the following: failure to identify the person responsible for the accident, vehicle’s insurance policy has no provision for the benefit of others, instances when the vehicle is exempted from licensing procedures, partial or full insolvency of the insurance company in whole and other cases that will be decided by the fund’s board of directors.
